There was a steelwork design freeze, prior to A2O’s appointment.
Large cladding voids had to be fire-protected.
When we commenced our design, there was no opportunity to influence the steelwork design. The A2O design team had to provide lightweight galvanised steel solutions for panel support where this was not present on the steel model.
The significant depth of the void behind the A2 Alucobond panels and the Quadcore support panels meant that a bespoke engineered solution had to be designed for closing the cavity. A2O worked with supplier Siderise to engineer a solution.
